Oh yes it must be the school holidays. After a scorcher of week the heavens opened and Harrogate parkrun 395 was a somewhat damp affair.
Not that a bit of drizzle (ok a lot of drizzle) was going to dampen the spirits of this weeks volunteers, oh no. They were all absolutely awesome.
Out on the course 280 hardcore runners, joggers and walkers said boo you to the weather and got their three laps in regardless.
That's it for now, just a few reminders.
Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat. The food (oh my, the cakes..!) and drinks are great and Sarah and her team are huge fans of parkrun! It's good fun and you can even get your result early!
